Teacher Training with Rodney Yee - Understanding Fundamental Principles of Yoga Therapeutics: Yoga on High, Columbus, OH
How do we look at the Yoga practices as therapeutic for our mind body? We all know how wonderful the practice can make us feel, but why is it working? If we understand the principles of how it works then we can utilize the poses, the breathing and the meditations for being easier in our everyday life and in situations of great strife. Loving attention and uncommon relaxation are the qualities that we are evoking with our knowledge. We will use this week to explore the Yoga with these purposes in mind.

Freedom in Body, Mind & Breath: A weekend retreat with Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman at The Omega Institute
Yoga is nothing if not a journey to show you how to experience life directly and be at peace. To further your journey, you are invited to steep yourself in this profound practice with two of the nation’s most respected yoga teachers, Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee.
You spend the weekend exploring asana, pranayama, and meditation, and the relationship between the three. As you align to your center through asana, you hone the attention of your mind, which can observe the subtle messages of your breath. Then you weave your mind and body together with the thread of your breath in pranayama. This yoking brings you to meditation and present-moment awareness.
You are guided through a series of standing and seated poses, twists and backbends, poses to open the hips, and forward bends. Then you experience a vinyasa practice through all the postures, with an emphasis on breath to leave you at the doorstep of pranayama and meditation. This turns you inward toward your center where you observe more deeply your beautiful life freely unfolding.
